Keanu: no sequels

03.24.2008
A lot of you probably don't care, but there apparently won't be another CONSTANTINE. Not with Keanu Reeves anyway. Director Francis Lawrence mentioned that the possibility of a sequel hinged on a good script a few months back, but Reeves seems to have put that possibility to bed. And I'm not all that jazzed up about switching actors mid-franchise. Not unless your name rhymes with Schmaggie Schmyllenhaal. Apparently, also, Reeves says that there are no characters that he's played that he has any desire to return to, which blows POINT BREAK 2 way out of the water.

CONSTANTINE, which incidentally I loved, was based on the Vertigo comic "Hellblazer". In the film version John Constantine is a supernatural detective who exorcises demons and rolls around with Shia LaBeouf in a cab. His charge in the film is to investigate the apparent suicide of some chick, while also battling a bunch of nasties from hell. He is also a chain smoker, and while no concrete explanation is ever given for this, my theory is that he was distraught that he was unable to save Rachel Weisz' twin sister, and thus lost his shot at the holy grail of sexual adventure: twins that looks like Rachel Weisz.

Lets not forget...

Tim Curry.

Legend. I said Viggo earlier...but now that I think about it...Curry may have been the best. Best makeup, voice and atmosphere anyway.

Good...

I'm glad there won't be any sequels to Constantine.

...I'm angry that if there are any that Keanu Reeves will not be reprising his role =(

That was maybe the first time I heard Peter Stormare speak without any noticeable accent. And every word that rolled of that forked tongue of his carried meaning with it. Incidentally, that was my favorite scene in the whole movie.

keanu

So after 3 Matrix films he won't return for a 4th? bummer... Consantine was good and if their planning to make a 2nd one, they sould either convince Keanu to return (offer more $$$) or not do it at all.

Yeah, Stormare was great, but what about Al "Call me Dad" Pacino? Plus, that had Keanu too, AND Charlize Theron! And don't forget about Elizabeth Hurley....she DOES own my soul.

Bummer

I like a lot of his characters and would love to see him revisit some of them...but you gotta respect the guy for not thinking with his wallet.

My money is on Viggo for the best satan of all time. Stormare was good too, but Viggo takes the cake.

Reeves is the man.

The guy made a gazillion $s off the Matrix series. He can do whatever he wants to do. There is no reason for him to take any paychecks. He still collects royalty off that shit.

Peter Stormare was THE greatest thing about that movie.

The whole slick, devilish, white suit look was awesome.

Guh...

Constantine was a hollow movie; great acting from Swinton and great CGI on the angel wings but that's pretty much it. No sequel is a good idea unless they can get someone to replace Lawrence who can actually direct a movie as opposed to a flashy commercial.

well that sucks the big one. constantine was actually a kick ass movie, seeing him against satan representation done by the great peter stormare would have been awsome. my guess is he knows most sequals have bad scripts to begin with so why bother (he let his gaurd slip with the matrix sequals). I am willing to bet that another speed or point break would be awsome with him in it again.

He already said NO to Neo

When promoting Revolutions he said he wouldn't be back to that caharacter, no more. He said he was done with The Matrix. Same with Ted Logan, same with John Constantine (and just take a look in how many iconics characters the guy already have...). He is very single minded and just don't do what people expect him to do. At that time when he refused to make Speed sequel, even his manager was against him because he was refusing a HUGE paycheck and the opportunity to become the biggest star of that

That's Keanu.

BTW, I am a fan of Constantine and time from time I watch it in DVD and it's a great comic book movie, very subtle, understated, with kick ass acting from Peter Stormare and Tilda Swinton. And Keanu's performance is spot on, but as a fan of him I understand he wants to do different characters and balance bigger and smaller movies. That's why he keeps so successful after all these years. His career is not about paychecks, it's about what interests to him personally.

The One That Should Have Been...

Well this absolutley sucks, Constantine is easily one of the best comic book films that has come out of Hollywood. I can honestly say its one I come back to regularly.

And yes, Peter Stormare = one of if not the greatest Satan yet!

Well, damn! I was just watching "Constantine" last night, and wondering whatever happened to the proposed sequel. Guess now I know. As Keanu himself would say, totally non-triumphant!

OOPS....

Sorry there, wrong sentence structure...I know it's from Vertigo...what I meant was, of all the shitty adaptations that come out these days (mainly from Marvel), Constantine is something I really liked. Wasn't saying it's from Marvel but was just comparing overall...hehe.

I agree with you 100%. Maybe Keanu just wants bigger pay for the sequels, so he goes out with this statement.
BTW, Hellblazer is from Vertigo.

WHA....?!

C'mon! Of all the shit that comes out of Marvel (most of them, anyway), I thought Constantine was a nice, solid adaptation that just seemed right. I don't see him doing a whole lot of stuff so why not just act in the damn thing? And wait, he wouldn't return as ANY of the roles he has played? Like if they made a fourth Matrix, he WOULDN'T return as Neo? Are you fu*kin' serious, Mr.Reeves? I don't understand how these people don't have the desire to replay some of the greatest characters and

I don't understand how these people don't have the desire to replay some of the greatest characters and iconic figures seen on screen. It's just confusing. I'd take Hugh Jackman's approach. I don't see him dropping Wolverine any time soon. AND...nobody stereotypes the guy...he's different in Van Helsing, The Prestige, The Fountain. That's good acting!

No new Bill & Ted movies? No decent Speed sequel? No Point Break 2? Nooo!!!!

But good on him for having the balls to turn down the obvious paychecks they would throw at him to do stuff like this. I like Keanu, while he may not be the best actor in the world, he has the morals of one.

Glad he doesnt share the same idea for sequels as those Hollywood executives who seem to be turning sequels out left and right.

However, he doesn't have a problem with remakes being his next will be a remake of The Day the Earth stood still.
